Vaccines required for school attendance

The Washington State Department of Health requires students to show proof of required vaccines for school attendance. All students must have a Washington State Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) form on file. The CIS form must have the required vaccine dates listed and a parent/guardian signature. View the required vaccines for school attendance (Grades K-12 and Preschool).

*As of July 28, 2019, a new state law removes the personal and philosophical option to exempt children from the MMR vaccine required for school and child care attendance.*

In Summary:

  • Personal/philosophical exemptions for MMR are no longer valid
  • Children need healthcare provider verified proof of MMR vaccination by the first day of school
  • Children not compliant with state vaccine requirements may be excluded from school

You can find more information at the WA Department of Health exemption law change web page, including FAQs: www.doh.wa.gov/mmrexemption
